Diary Notes – 23 years ago today I wrote in my hearing impaired son’s diary. I was writing up Hughan’s ‘Diary’ so Vanessa, at The Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town (South Africa), knew what we were doing at home, in Gaborone in Botswana, so she could track Hughan’s progress.
We went to visit my friend, whose daughter is profoundly deaf and she attended the Carel du Toit Centre years ago, in the morning. The daughter is going to university in America – Galadette.
It is the last time we shall see her as she leaves on 24 July.
Hughan had fun on her swings and pushed a trailer around the garden.
He also joined in with Vil and her son playing cricket.
We went to the cricket club in the afternoon.
(Helping parents with hearing impaired children through our experience…we are following our profoundly deaf son’s diary, from 1990, so you can see what we did to help him with his speech and hearing. Hughan is 25 years old now and he can hold a conversation on a phone. It is the little thing we did every day, over a long period of time, that has helped him. Please visit our page…’like’ and follow us to help others…Thank you :) )
